Student Interest Major Factor
in Success of Showing,
Professor Says.

"More matured and finished than
last year's exhibition," was the
opinion of Prof. Avard T. Fairbanks
on the third annual exhibition of,
sculpture now being shown in the
studios in University hall.
"Last year's exhibit drew more
than 3,000 people," Professor Fair-
banks said, "and was truly an out-
standing and successful exhibition,
but it is my belief that the present
one is of a higher calibre."
"A remarkable thing in relation
to this exhibit," said Professor Fair-
banks, "is that our department has
been in existence for only three
years and that the students who
are doing this work are not con-
centrating entirely upon it but are
carrying a full academic schedule."
Evidently the students are not in-
terested solelyinthe credit hours,
for although, most of them receive
only two hours credit for it they
spend an average of twelve hours
weekly in the studios on the fourth
floor of old University hall.
Some of the pieces by students
which Professor Fairbanks consid-
ered outstanding were "Meditation"
by Helen V. Bailey, '33, "Serenity"
by William Caley, '32, and "The
Blacksmith" by Werner Striedieck,
33. "Miss Bailey has been with us
three years," he said, "and always
does lovely work. She is a promis-
ing young sculptress."

Last Print Show
of Season Opens
in Local Gallery
by Donald F. Blankertz
The last of this year's print ex-
hibits to be given under auspices of
the College Art association is now
being shown daily in the north
gallery of Alumni Memorial hall
where it will be hung until May 30.
This exhibit is a collection of 36
prints by contemporary artists, with
the sole exception of four litho-
graphs by Ingres, which have been
secured for this showing from the
private collection of Dr. and Mrs.
Walter R. Parker of Grosse Pointe.
A noted contemporary Britisher,
Gerald Leslie Brockhurst dominates
the exhibit with 21 striking etch-
ings. Using a technique that is
similar to line engraving, he pro-
duces a dramatic effect through
his subtle use of light and shade.
His portraits "Una" and "Young
Womanhood" areespecially fine
for their deliniation of character.
"Ursula," a nude study previously
exhibited in Ann Arbor, is interest-
ine for its linear composition.
Etchngs by three modern Brit-
ishers, Augustus John, whose por-
trait heads reveal him as a follower
of Rembrandt, James McBey, whose
prints exhibit a reserve of strength
behind the delicate manner of
their execution, and Martin Hardie,
whose three etchings suggest a
suppression of detail and a sense
for the dramatic, are also included.

AMERICAN CONSUL Students Get Revenge

Once more youth triumnphed over

at their annual field day, which
was held Saturday at Saginaw for-

was in the nature of a revenge for
the defeat which the students suf-
fered at the hands of the faculty
last year.

Austrian Paintings which has been

paintings included in this collection
are fairly representative of present-
day Austrian art, showing a variety
of media and subject matter.
